Johannes Mejer, a geographer and mathematician, was born 1606 in Husum. He has mapped Schleswig and Holstein in the years 1638 to 1648. The resulting maps have been published in Danckwerth's Atlas Newe Landesbeschreibung der zwey Hertzogthümer Schleswich und Holstein in 1652. The copper plates were sold to J. Blaeu and re-published in his Atlas Major. Mejer died in 1674.
